Apple confirmed the App Store price changes in an email sent to developers on Tuesday and gave 24 hours for the changes to take affect. The changes impact customers in Australia, Indonesia, South Africa, Turkey and India.
Apple has adjusted its pricing tiers with apps priced at $0.99 increasing to $1.29; $1.99 apps rising to $2.49; $2.99 apps climb to $3.79 and $4.49 apps are now $4.99.
The Australian App Store pricing was already higher than the US App Store, despite the apps on the App Store being digital products.
In good news for app buyers in Israel and New Zealand, retail prices will be decreased by Apple.
